Gumotex Twist 1


The Gumotex Twist 1 is a single person inflatable kayak. Weighing in at a mere 9kgs the Twist 1 could be the perfect solution for paddlers who may struggle to carry, transport and store full sized plastic canoes and kayaks. With a maximum recommended carrying capacity of 100kgs, this kayak is better suited towards small to medium sized paddlers.

The Gumotex Twist 1 has been manufactured from Nitrilon material which has great abrasion resistance and proves highly durable to provide many years of happy paddling. A raised seat (removable) keeps the paddler raised of the floor of the kayak, and unlike most inflatables, the Twist also includes in-situ footrests to give the paddler an upright, comfortable sitting position.
This is a great inflatable kayak for touring on calm inland waters and sheltered coastlines, providing stability and ease of control- features that beginners or less experienced paddlers look for in their first kayak. The Twist 1 also easily packs down into a convenient carrying bag, which will fit into most car boots, caravan and motorhome lockers and also easily stored at home.


If you are looking for a similar style, stable inflatable kayak with extra carrying capacity or space for a second, smaller paddler then please have a look at the Gumotex Twist 2
